London-based artist Alfie Templeman has returned with “Eyes Wide Shut", which is his first release in two years.

The brand new single from Alfie Templeman follows his 2022 debut album, Mellow Moon.

“Eyes Wide Shut is an amalgamation of ruminations I faced on tour. My brain always seems to be on full volume after a show and I find it really difficult to wind down. The adrenaline used to turn sour pretty quick once you’d get back to your hotel that looked the same as every other hotel," explains Templeman.

He adds that the track, "helped me express those feelings and since we started playing it live I often use it as a reminder to go easy on myself. It deters the burn out. Musically, Eyes was the first song I wrote for my upcoming album. I knew I wanted to make big, weird pop songs. At the time I was rinsing Prince and Talking Heads a lot, lots of crazy staccato synth textures and nutty bass lines.”

"Eyes Wide Shut" is out now via Chess Club Records/AWAL Recordings.
